"The truth is that Barak Obama is
a committed and active Christian."

be “held accountable.” How we shall hold “accountable” Americans who carried out an admittedly “inadvertent” act should prove interesting. But several other
things should also prove interesting:
3) Obviously the Taliban spokesman's statement was more powerful than our Commander-in-Chief's obsequious apology. Today [2/25/12] two American officers were found dead of gunshot wounds deep inside the heavily fortified Afghan interior ministry. "There is CCTV there and special locks. The killer would have had to have the highest security (clearance) to get to the room where they were killed," a source told Reuters. Perhaps our Commander-in-Chief will now want to fly there personally for a deep-body bow and some genuine groveling.
4) In Afghanistan's recent past (2009), Bibles were intentionally burned by U.S. military personnel, under orders from higher up. Did you miss our Commander-in-Chief's apology to Christians throughout the world? Probably so. You have in fact heard him refer often to the "Holy Quran." Have you ever heard him refer to the "Holy Bible"? Probably not.
There are two things we can still count on: we can bet that, whoever the Republican nominee is, his religious and philosophical beliefs will be microscopically examined, critiqued, and torn apart by our "media." Obama? Not at all. Too personal. "Over the line." And, for those who do believe in Christianity, we can still say "God help us."
